Wow, Sen. Jeff Merkley Has Really Done A 180 On Filibuster Reform

In the spirit of Throwback Thursday, let's take a gander at Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) and his thoughts on filibuster reform:

November 2013: Merkley is completely fine with then-Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) inventing the "Reid Rule," and even thanked him for his leadership on the topic.

April 2017: Merkley goes full-blown emo kid when the judicial filibuster is abolished.

So which is it, Sen. Merkley? Leadership or the end of the world?
